Somewhere under the rainbow, there's a place where everyone is welcome, where souls grow, and where the water always flows downstream except when it stops to swirl around in one place. Welcome to Onion River Campground!

Spacious sites along the Winooski River, or come find a private nook tucked up in the apple orchard, next to the plum tree by the pond, or in the high meadow.

Camping at Onion River is respectful and kind, and we generally have loads of fun! Good people, hot showers, full hookups (water, electric & septic), walking trails, swimming access in the river and at Paradise Falls. Gorgeous foliage. Open May-October.

We are a public campground, and we host community and private events throughout the season. Your camping trip during one of our events may be the highlight of your summer!

Nice, grass covered sites with full hook ups are just a few steps from the river. The bathhouse is close (but not too close ;-) ) and has toasty hot showers. Lots to do on the property...but one of our favorites was walking up to the tree lined rail bed that used to carry trains all the way up to Canada. The tracks have since been removed, making it a perfect tree lined path for biking and hiking. The hosts are fun people and even provide free firewood.

Fall in camp!The coolest neighbors.Driving into the camping area, the RV campground is on the left and the rest of the campground is beyond it past the tree.  The river runs along the property off to the left as well.Morning coffee!

Onion River has a lot going for it. It's out in the middle of nowhere, there's an amazing converted train track trail through a beautiful forest, and a river runs right through it. They also have all kinds of parties and events there. That said, the camping spots are pretty tight, the bathrooms (which do have hot showers) are not particularly clean (especially if they had an event recently) and they might or might not have your reservation handy. It's small, privately owned, and in a lovely part of the country. Just don't expect what you'd get at a state-run campground. I was hoping it wouldn't be as crammed in here as it is. Granted, most sites aren't filled, but they could be, so you have to act like they will be. Tables and firepits are available, but you have to ask.

A family hippie vibe, but not much privacy. It’ seems like a nice place for families and people who are super unfussy, but it wasn’t the right place for us. It differed a bit from the description- it was a place to lay our heads, but I wouldn’t stay again.
